's next for the candidate, and msnbc analyst michael steele and eugene robinson weigh s in. >>> later, more details in the trayvon martin case, his girlfriend describes their conversation just before he was killed, reverend al sharpton and charles blow from the new york times join me on that tonight. stay with us, we're right back. details later in this hour, we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." tonight was a big win for mitt romney in the state of illinois, and it raises questions about whether rick santorum has any real shot of being a factor in this race anymore. this was rick santorum tonight. >> all it boils down to one word, and that's what's at stake in this election, and it's right behind me on that banner and it's the word freedom. i was pleased to hear, before i came out, governor romney is now adapting that theme as his speech tonight. i am glad we are moving the debate here in the republican party. >> freedom, well, it's also about delegates, but santorum may be running out of opportunities to move the debate in this race. many of the big contests coming
committee, michael steele. perfect morning to have you all onboard. willie, hello. >> wow. >> a couple of things went down last night. we -- mitt lost to rick santorum and to newt. right? >> third place in both states. >> that's not good, michael. >> not good. and they keep crying about the numbers, we've got the delegates and i think willie had the perfect quote for the day. you know, it's like you know, vote for me, i've got the math. it doesn't work like that. >> the math -- >> something like that. >> they keep talking about the math. >> well, they do, and the reality of it is, you're not going to waltz into the nomination with the votes in the back pocket. give all that to romney, fine, you're close to somewhere around 400 delegates short to actually the get the nomination. and with proportional voting coming up with everything else, unless he's pulling 50% to 60% of that vote, i don't know how he gets there. the only way it happens is if newt or santorum drops out of the race and that changes it. but as you can see from last night, i don't think anybody's going anywhere. there's n
't be called tonight in ohio. former chairman of the republican party michael steele, and you have been a booster for the long drawn out primary campaign and does that apply to long drawn out primary nights like th like this? do you lick your chops and see this type of night for the republicans? >> i do. actually, i do. because it is part of the american story and we complain about people when they don't get en ga engage and you wonder why and when you create an avenue for them to express themselves and make a choice, we should celebrate that, and i do. yeah, i mean, do you want to be up at 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning and doing politics? some of us do, but most of us don't, but the point is that the people of ohio like we have seen in idaho and georgia and elsewhere tonight had a chance to get out and to save, hey, this is who we want. think about it this way, rachel, you know, under the old system this contest given all of the other, you know, pieces to it could have been over at the beginning of february. when you go through the iowa caucuses and that process and romney comes out and
," sam stein. former chairman of the republican national committee, michael steele, kelly o'donnell. in new york, willie geist and msnbc contributor, mike barnicle. guys, a lot to talk about. willie, the supreme court case. unbelievable poll coming out not only on the health care law and what americans want, but also in afghanistan. americans have some very clear cut decisions, made up their mind on health care and the war. >> the question of the war, "the new york times" poll, it's not just the number, which is 7 and 10 americans think we should not be fighting in afghanistan. itis the jump. it's up 16 points. there's not a lot of mystery to it. you can walk through the terrible things happening with staff sergeant robert bales, the burning of the koran and where nato officers and troops have been shot by soldiers. >> yeah. >> there's a slow, steady beat of the american people saying we ought not be there anymore. >> sam stein, you look at the cbs poll that came out, "the new york times" poll that came out yesterday. the first case of the argument. it was fascinating. the s
and michael steele is chairman of the republican national party and an msnbc political analyst. let's see how long we agree. there are several possible outcomes. there's two states. how many outcomes can there be from the votes tonight in mississippi and alabama. first, let's say santorum wins both tonight. if that happens, that means newt gets blown out of the race, i think. and santorum secures the position of clearly number-one challenger to mitt romney. let's stop. here's another possibility. gingrich could win both tonight. he's from that area. he's from georgia. that could hit santorum, which helps romney. it keeps him in the race. third, you could have a gingrich/santorum split tonight. each one winning a state. if that happens, no big changes. finally, romney could take one of the states, say mississippi. that's big for romney because if he wins mississippi and newt wins alabama, that's very bad for santorum and very good for romney. that's my view. let's go through your thinking. >> i agree with that. >> all that? >> i agree those are the basic four scenarios. i guess i agree with th
to romney after the results. florida, michael steele continues to contend that those rules are not fair, that they shouldn't have been winner take all. look, if he doesn't get to 1144, the way old credential committees and lawrence, i know i'm beginnigi giving you flashb it's going to be chaos. >> in a universe where there's the potential for this kind of shenanigans in dels, who benefits from that, the team with the best lawyers, the best back room operators? certainly the team that has both of those is going to be benefited over the other, but you know, it also is going to come down to who has the emotional connection if it came down to with the delegates at the detention. these candidates will have to get up and give a speech, the speech of their lives. all of the preplanned showbiz aspects of the convention where you're trying to drive a message, trying to connect with the american people will be totally out the window. it will be total chaos. it's anyone's guess what will happen. there's absolutely no modern precedent for it. >> chuck todd, steve schmidt and rachel maddow. thank yo
and the statue of lenin and stalin? >> michael steele is only one man. he fought the good fight, but there's only so much he can do. >> holy cow. you know, we usually have the democratic hour of power here. but seriously, last week was a week with carl marks. even barnacle went way off the cliff. >> he was wearing a nike pullover track suit on friday, so he completely mailed it in by thursday afternoon. >> oh, i hear you guys were so unkind to mike barnicle, i even felt sorry for him. >>> coming up, we're going to be talking to presidential candidate rick santorum. >>> also, congressman elijah cummings. >>> and later, we'll have willem dafoe stopping by. very exciting. >>> also, mika jets in from the south of france. but first, here's bill cairns with a check on the forecast. bill, i just -- i don't know what to say about this weather except you've got to love global warming. i hope it sticks around for a couple of months. >> yeah, i know. don't go buying any snow blowers anytime soon. it's just incredible. international falls, minnesota, one of the coldest places there is, was 80 degrees this we
michael steele, formerly of the jon 2012 girls, abby huntsman livingston and hugo lind gren of "the new york times" magazine. four hours ago, the headline was mitt romney won illinois. so what? that was the washington post. but in the last hour with jeb bush now in romney's pocket, the party appears to be coalesce. joining us now from washingtoning is "time" magazine senior political analyst the cheshire cat of american politics mark halperin. thanks for joining the program. >> meow. thank you, alex. mark, this morning your headline in "time" magazine read, romney's illinois victory signals an end to the gop primary. very final. it was changed a few hours later to say romney's illinois victory may signal an end to the gop primary after jeb bush's endorsement. are you guys ready to change the "time" magazine headline back? >> we are not. the internet is not that fungible. we were only allowed one change according to the rules. look, it's over unless something intervenes. something could intervene. it's hard to come
are the first three we will hear from. bring in the former chairman of the republican party, michael steel. nice to see you, mr. chairman. >> hey, rachel, what's up? >> i saw you mixing it up with joan walsh about the politics of the rush limbaugh comments about sandra fluke, the nature of his apology, mitt romney's inability to say woe do anything other than use different language there you seem to think this is sometime a real fight about contraception that's worth having between the parties. do you think that this is what republicans and democrats ought to be fighting for, putting republicans in a good stead heading to november? >> no, i don't. that is exactly the point. i think all of this could have been nipped in the bud early, early on for the leadership of the party, particularly those candidates running for president, to -- you know, without hesitation just rebuke the profanity of the comments. to make it clear this is not a reflection of who we are as conservatives what we stand for as a broadly based republican party and i thought again, one of those missed opportunity for the leaders
